Chuck Louviere is a lead instructor in the Information Systems and Technologies department at Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City (OSU-OKC) campus. His current responsibilities include course design and development for an introductory level general education computer course called Computer Concepts with Applications, which services 1,200 to 1,300 students yearly.
Chuck’s deep experience means he has interacted with virtually all of the major IT digital learning solutions. When he started his position at OSU, Chuck felt that circumstances dictated the department begin searching for a new digital learning solution for the introductory course. This began a yearlong evaluation of digital learning solutions. During this process, Chuck appreciated Cengage Learning’s willingness to customize the platform to his needs. He also noticed SAM’s user-friendliness, and noted that that SAM would be easy to implement in a large, multi-section course.
As a result of the school’s recent switch to SAM, Chuck has already observed an increase in student scores using SAM Paths, and appreciates the added practice that SAM gives to students in the areas where they need it the most.
